Here's the freshly-published public resource on Echocardiography created by Anne-Sophie Beraud, a fellow at Stanford Hospital. EdTech helped her encode all the video clips, set up the mediawiki and suggested structure, and created a corresponding CourseWork course for her quizzing. Next step is to share the resource broadly and get it listed on Medical Education resource sites.
Her project description details are below.

Website: Trans-thoracic Echocardiography in ICU
The access to the website I created: "Transthoracic echocardiography in ICU" has just been unrestricted. This website is now free and available to everybody:
The goal of this website is to describe the basics of transthoracic echocardiography to intensivists and emergency physicians.
-the essential knowledge to start scanning: what are the main TTE views and how to obtain them, how to visualize the IVC
-the main indications of echocardiography in critically ill patients: assessment of left and right ventricular function, diagnostic of pleural and pericardic effusions, estimation of volume status, evaluation of significant valvular diseases, calculation of cardiac output...
-an echo library with many examples of diseases
-an online testing of knowledge, but still restricted to Stanford students
Thank you for your interest, please feel free to forward this information to everybody interested in point-of-care echocardiography and to give me any feedback.
